Photoplethysmography (PPG) is an easy optical method for detecting volumetric variations in peripheral blood circulation.
According to scientists from the Mount Sinai Hospital, wearable devices can detect COVID-19 infection earlier than conventional diagnostic techniques and can help monitor and enhance the management of the disease.
With the COVID-19 lockdowns and restricted travel, several people are resorting to virtual doctor appointments and consultations as a safer option than in-person doctor visits.
Sports Data Labs, Inc. (SD Labs), an award-winning leader in collection, analysis and distribution of real-time Human Data from on-body sensors and sensing systems in professional sports and digital health, announced today the publication of a pioneering study in the biomedical journal Digital Biomarkers. It provides the first published evidence for real-time capture, digital processing, and heart rate display from medical-grade sensors in live professional sports competition.
A soft, flexible sensor system created with electrically conductive yarns could help map problematic pressure points in the socket of an amputee's prosthetic limb, researchers from North Carolina State University report in a new study.
A new kind of wearable health device would deliver real-time medical data to those with eye or mouth diseases, according to Huanyu 'Larry' Cheng, Dorothy Quiggle Career Development Professor in the Penn State Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM).
Tufts University engineers have designed and demonstrated new flexible thread-based sensors that are capable of measuring the neck movements, offering information on the direction, degree of displacement, and angle of rotation of the head.
Researchers from Skoltech and the University of Texas Medical Branch (US) have shown how optoacoustics can be used for monitoring skin water content, a technique which is promising for medical applications such as tissue trauma management and in cosmetology. The paper outlining these results was published in the Journal of Biophotonics.
A highly sensitive wearable sensor for cardiorespiratory monitoring could potentially be worn continuously by cardiac patients or others who require constant monitoring.
For people struggling with obesity or suffering from serious health-related problems due to weight gain, gastric bypass surgery, at times, becomes the last option.
